Your Toddler: Month 23
This month: Tantrums
Temper tantrums by definition are an explosion of rage and frustration, when a toddler completely loses power over her emotions. Most toddlers are more susceptible to tantrum behavior when they’re tired or hungry -- when they’re already grumpy. So the best way to prevent tantrums is to keep your toddler well-rested and well-fed: When you suspect one is brewing, nip it in the bud with a nap, a snack, or another distraction.
